Misdiagnosis

Failure to Diagnose in Colorado

Whether you have been rushed to the emergency room or you are visiting your doctor for a check-up, you trust your health care providers to make sound decisions. If there has been a failure to diagnose your symptoms properly, you may not receive the appropriate medical care. This could lead to major complications, injuries and damages. At the Denver, Colorado, law offices of Schoenwald & Thompson LLC, we help victims of medical malpractice protect their rights.

Common Misdiagnoses

The failure to diagnose a medical condition can have serious long-term consequences. Misdiagnoses can occur in any medical setting and for a variety of reasons. Your doctor's failure to do adequate testing or the misreading of films or laboratory studies could lead to a misdiagnosis and delay in appropriate treatment. Lawyers at Schoenwald & Thompson LLC will conduct a thorough examination of the evidence and consult expert witnesses to determine whether the failure to diagnose was the result of negligence.

The more serious your medical condition is, the more devastating the consequences of misdiagnosis can be. The failure to diagnose cancer may be more serious than the failure to diagnose a broken wrist; however, both can have long-term consequences.

Failure to Diagnose in an Emergency Setting

Misdiagnoses can occur in an emergency room or by health care professionals in other settings. You are entitled to proper medical care no matter where you are receiving treatment. For example, failure to diagnose a heart attack in any setting could leave you with serious, permanent disabilities. With years of experience handling medical malpractice cases, we can help you determine whether the failure to diagnose your condition was the result of medical negligence in any setting.
